Welcome to FSU Mathematics

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics at Florida State University, home to researchers, educators, students and a supporting staff that strive for excellence in mathematics. The cutting-edge research of our faculty and students covers a broad spectrum of pure and applied mathematics, creating a vibrant scientific atmosphere in the department. Our research projects address problems in theoretical mathematics, mathematical modeling and computation, and applications in such areas as finance, the life and earth sciences, and data science. Many of our research faculty enjoy extramural grant support, greatly enhancing the impact and visibility of our activities. I invite you to browse our research page and find out more about the research we do and the e-print series for some of the latest from our faculty.

We run one of the top graduate programs in the mathematical sciences in the Southeast, with doctoral tracks in pure mathematics, applied and computational mathematics, biomathematics, and financial mathematics, as well as a professional master's degree program in financial mathematics. Our students receive individualized attention throughout their graduate school experience and find success in a variety of careers in academia, industry or government. Our alumni include a member of the National Academies, professors at renowned research universities, a Presidential Early Career Award recipient, senior scientists at National Laboratories, and executives at various companies. More on the placement of our recent graduates may be found on the graduate programs web pages.

We are proud of the vast array of academic opportunities that we offer to our undergraduates. Our five bachelor's degree tracks provide options tailored to a variety of mathematical interests and career goals. To further enrich their academic experience, our students may elect to participate in projects coordinated by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities program, write an honors in the major thesis, join a math club and other activities. Please visit the undergraduate page for more information.

The Department also makes major contributions to the larger educational mission of the University by offering a number of liberal studies and basic mathematics courses, many taught by an award-winning Specialized Faculty. With the support of the Friends of the Mathematics Department and the community, we host annual events such as Math Fun Day and the FSU High School Math Contest, reaching out to hundreds of local K-12 students. Please visit the community page for more on these events.

I encourage you to navigate through our web pages and learn more about the FSU Mathematics Department. If you have any questions or comments, please drop a note to chair@math.fsu.edu. If you are a student and seek academic advisement, our advising staff is best reached using advisor@math.fsu.edu.
